My paintings have been focusing on internal language of words in our thoughts that are provoked by an experience. The words aren’t written for one to identify, speak, and understand. Yet, they appear in lines, color, and shapes created by a sensation.
Mark making has been an enormous application in my practice as an abstract painter. In my paintings, composing a line has endless boundaries, and a language of its own, it becomes the center of conversation giving life to color and shapes through balance and harmony.
